The vocalist/organist has re-invented himself many times over, playing professionally on drums, percussion, and keyboards. The soulful singer/song-writer was born into a musical family in Nashville, TN and and later raised in Madison, WI where he watched and learned from 'Funky Drummer" Clyde Stubblefield, toured and recorded with Jazz legend Ben Sidran and other notable local musicians.
Moses Patrou has traveled, lived and studied for extensive periods of time in major music epicenters: New Orleans, LA, Salvador Bahia Brazil, and Havana, Cuba before making New York City home in 2001. He has since been back to Tennessee where he recorded with HI-Rhythm Section in Memphis, and Fame Rhythm Section in Muscle Shoals, AL.
Moses Patrou has played on stages with Levon Helm (The Band), Boz Skaggs, and Gregg Allman, and has appeared at Monterey Jazz Fest, Womad Jazz Fest (Canary Islands), Montreal Jazz Fest, Ascona Jazz Fest (Switzerland), and countless others on nearly every continent.
Leading his group from the Hammond organ, Patrou navigates effortlessly through Blues, R&B, Soul, Rock, and Country genres, his groups range from organ trio (B3 Dive Bombers) featuring his sultry vocal over organ/bass, guitar, and drums, sometimes adding tenor sax and bass guitar to create the "Brooklyn Dive Bombers" experience.
Whether on big festival stages or cozy Jazz clubs, Moses Patrou brings a fresh take on an old school sound and delivers a quality of music that is becoming harder and harder to find in 2022.
